SINGAPORE: International Accountants Day was celebrated for the first time in Singapore as some 2,000 accounting and finance professionals gathered at the Lawn@Marina Bay on Thursday for activities.
Braving the rain, they danced to YMCA and broke the Singapore record for the longest chain of name cards of accountants and those who work to support the profession.
Minister of State for Finance and Transport Mrs Josephine Teo was at the event, which also had a fund—raising theme.
More than 10 charities took part to raise awareness, sign up volunteers, and sell products for their cause.
